I've done it multiple times in a cooper S.

Felt good today, holding my first Porsche key.

Abarth is a fun little car but I could never get used to the driving position. For the same money I'd rather get a GTI or Cooper S... Did you test the competition too?

Thanks!  It's a 2011.  What type of Porsche did you get?

Reminds me of my dearly departed 135i. If yours is black sapphire with coral red interior it would be exactly the same

Yes. I tested both of those cars. (and 4 or 5 others as well.)

Driving position felt great for me in the Abarth. (I guess I'm shaped like an Italian.)

I liked the way the Abarth handled, the sound it makes, the interior, and it just felt better and more fun to drive.

You sure you can live with a manual transmission in NYC?

The car sounds amazing and the gray metallic + rims look great in person. Congrats!

It is black sapphire metallic but with the black boston interior.  Coral red would have been beautiful. 

 

BSM is truly a gorgeous color when it's all cleaned up.....fantastic depth.

Was passed by a 458 on the way home in black. Traffic was a steady 80mph and it just burbbled past in almost silence.

The thing has such a duality to it; lithe and slippery like a ninja but with such road presence that you can't miss it. It strikes me more as a jungle cat than a wild horse - pure confidence without arrogance.
